Sounds pretty standard in the world of wedding planning. I wouldn’t respond with anything rude. I am direct and would probably explain that they are not invited so to answer the question, no their invite was not lost in the mail. LOL. 

I DO know that some people explain that they are only inviting a small number of people or that thei venue only holds so many people. People are weird sometimes and like to invite themselves to events. LOL!

I would do a little of from column a and a little from column b. Like, seeing as the wedding isn’t until August we haven’t sent the invites yet and seeing as we haven’t talked in two years you won’t be recieving one. Okay maybe that last bit is too much…

If they haven’t talked in 2 years (on FB?) I would ignore it. It’s not a big deal.

@Redroc_13:  yuppp this happened to me too. Drifted apart from a friend and they flat out asked if they were invited. I find it really rude. I just answered that we had to downsize the list because the venue only allows a certain amount of people, and that was that. People don’t understand how expensive weddings are!

I keep getting this from an absolute tool at work. I’m only having a select few family members there, and my wedding is mid-week. Any time the subject of my wedding comes up at work, he pipes up with some guff about putting in a holiday so he can attend and when is he getting his invite etc. I know he’s doing it to wind me up, but it’s geting tiresome to the point where I bluntly told him that even if I was having a bigger wedding, the very last people I’d invite would be work colleagues.

I hate when people push me to the point of rudeness, but it had to be said! People think that because you’re getting married that invites are public domain, almost like they’re gig tickets. “Put me down for two please”… er… no.

@Redroc_13:  Don’t even get me started on pushy co-workers who try to get you to socialise out of hours… haha. My date is our anniversary, though your date still falls into the festival we were at when we got together. Yay for a brilliant week in August! Laughing

@Redroc_13:  Ugh, some people seriously have no tact! Just ignore and delete.. I think that sends a stronger message than actually saying anything back! Seriously what goes on in people’s minds.. lol!
